In what might invite adverse reactions from India, former AJK prime minister and Head of Muslim Conference Sardar Attique Ahmed Khan has announced that he will cross the Line of Control (LoC) to enter J&K on November 24 to expose “Indian atrocities.”
“We will cross the LoC from the three areas of AJK on November 24 simultaneously and peacefully under the flag of AJK,” he announced this at a press conference in Muzaffarabad, reports The Nation.
“To express our solidarity with oppressed mothers and sisters and highlight Indian atrocities in Occupied Kashmir, we have decided to cross the Line of Control on 24 November,” Sardar Attique spoke to Daily Pakistan.
Earlier, Pakistan Army chief General Raheel Sharif visited the Line of Control on Sunday for the first time since the surgical strike conducted by the Indian Army and expressed satisfaction over the operational preparedness of the military.
Sharif’s visit comes over a week after Indian Army chief General Dalbir Singh visited the Northern and Western Commands to review India’s operational preparedness along the border with Pakistan in the wake of heightened tension between the two countries following the surgical strike at terror camps across the Line of Control.
Indian troops launched the surgical strike on September 29 following the deadly Uri attack on September 18 in which 19 Indian soldiers and 1 BSF jawan had been killed in the brazen assault launched by four Pakistani terrorists who were also eliminated in the counter-offensive by the army.
